So, I know we were all googly-eyed over Big Kid's insistence on buying his girl friend nice jewelry for no good reason.
"I am raising a man unlike any other man," I thought proudly,"One in a million."
Yesterday I picked him up from the bus stop and told him I would take him to the store.
"I'm finkin' I need to make somefin' now. I decided I want to give her a silver necklace wif a red heart. What if da jewry store doesn't have dat?"
I told him we'd look.
He walked in and marched around, glancing at the different tables. Finally he stopped. "Dat," he said, pointing.
There was a silver necklace with a pink heart that said Best Friend and had an outline of a girl and a horse. It was $6. It was also ugly, and I mean that in the sweetest way possible.
I showed him a lovely set of fake pearls. Pointed out an adorable, colorful bracelet with heart shaped beads. He was dead set on the horse heart necklace. "Does she even like horses?" I asked.
"Probably. Girls usually like horses," he answered. He might be right, maybe she'll love it.
But, I also might be raising the guy that buys ugly jewelry.
This morning when I put it in his pocket, I asked if he was nervous about giving it to her.
"No, mostly just happy. She's da most amazin' girl I ever met, and I met a lot of girls."
Now I'm dying to pick him up from the bus stop and hear how it all went down. I also really want to meet her and see this amazingness she possesses.
And she better not think the necklace is ugly.
